our lives are made up of relationships.
from parents and partners, mailmen and bankers. to pets and neighbors, teachers and colleagues; relationships tie humans together, often without us evening knowing it.
while most relationships center around living, breathing things, some are more abstract and dreamy; such as one’s relationship with music or writing, cooking or running.
relationships have formed human bonds and strengthened the social paradigm. yet, they also have the ability to bring out the worst. relationships, no matter the type, can wreak havoc. they can be the backbone of hilarity. they can mortify. we would be lonely without them, but with them, our simple lives become a little more challenging, a little more delicate.
these are the stories of relationships.
